Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe is a veteran and family-owned and operated cafe specializing in hand-cut doughnuts baked fresh every day. We serve specialty coffee sourced from direct-trade coffee roaster Intelligentsia. While Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe is technically a startup, it is grounded in the rich history and experience of the Murphy family dating back to the 1960’s and set in a small town in Florida. The original Mr. and Mrs. Murphy, Earl and Shirley, raised their family on a small farm in Connecticut, but the long New England winters took their toll. In 1961 they sold the family home, said goodbye to family and friends, and headed south with no specific plans for the future. They literally packed up their belongings and youngest child and set out on an adventure that they could not have known we would be talking about today. The Murphy’s had no idea where they were headed or what they would do when they got there, but their strong entrepreneurial spirit showed them the way. In 1962, Earl and Shirley opened the original Mrs. Murphy’s Donuts in Jupiter, Florida which, began a legacy of several successful shops that would follow from Florida to Massachusetts, to Vermont, and New Hampshire; all created on the founding core principles of Quality, Community, and Family.

Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.
Delicious seasonal selection, fresh, and great recommendations by the staff!
delicious donuts and great atmosphere/location.
The service was fast and friendly. And the food was good.
Best donuts in town
The food was really good. My server was just unfamiliar with the menu.
very yummy coffee and donuts! And it's a cute neighborhood spot!
Great variety of food other than just donuts.
Definitely will return. Breakfast sandwich was amazing as were the donuts. seems like all of their food is great!
I met the owner and heard his story today. I love that he's still showing up and training employees 8 months after the opening. My sandwich was good but not a first choice in Arlington for $10. (I will never spend $4 on a donut when they are $0.79 at Harris Teeter on the next block.) I had my chicken pesto sandwich toasted and think it would have been better had they used 1 slice of cheese instead of 2 and melted the cheese on the toasted bread.
Super friendly people! They also have staff that are very well taken care off and they take care of you. Happy they are here!
Adorable coffee & donut shop. We visited because of the Nift we got, and the donuts were out of this world good! We got coffee and espresso along with a turkey sausage egg and cheese on ciabatta bread. Can’t wait to go back.
love the vibe, coffee and smoothies!
Excellent menu with donuts, pastries, breakfast, and fuller meals.
Great veg options for food. Would definitely return again!
We liked everything about Good Company -- food, atmosphere, selection, service, location. We'll be back!
So many great donut choices and they are truly some of the best donuts I've ever had
Amazing food and the owners are so kind and generous. They’re bringing my job free pastries as a result of me visiting that day and I’m so grateful that Nift connected us!
Great to discover this place! Right down the road from us and we wouldn’t have stopped in if it weren’t for Nift!
Loved the variety of donuts and other food items on the menu. While the name suggests breakfast this is a place you can enjoy all day and night. Beer and cocktail menu lends itself to the menu & donuts. Great local stop.
Great selection of doughnuts and good coffee
Good customer service and doughnuts
Great food and coffee — and I never knew it was there before Nift. So glad I tried it. I will be back.
This place is great! Who ever heard of a donut shop with a happy hour! I have been searching for a good cake donut with chocolate icing....this is it!

Customer was great and the donuts was tasty
The doughnuts are really good! They were very helpful explaining the different kinds. Also having samples at the front is great.
My husband and I stopped by Good Company Doughnuts & Cafe after a long morning run. We decided to dedicate our Nift Gift to a half-dozen doughnuts. The shop is bright and inviting and the staff, including the owner, were warm and welcoming. We had a couple of questions about doughnuts in order to optimize our picks. The selection was delightfully plentiful as well. The doughnuts were Delicious! We will be back! We'd love to try breakfast as well. Thank you!
The basic dough tastes good and the toppings are fantastic. Best maple-bacon doughnut I’ve ever had.
Very friendly staff, good selection of donuts and coffee options. Seems like a cool place, will definitely go back
